High-Quality Garden Tools
Made in the U.S. is important to OHSAY USA (www.ohsayusa.com), which sells 15 garden products such as hand-forged cultivators and trowels with hickory wood handles and hammered by a master blacksmith from saw steel. They also offer stainless steel potting scoops with serrated edges to cut through roots. Prices range from $30-$40.
Celtic Farm (www.thecelticfarm.com) sells only products they would use for their own flower-growing business. Well-crafted, with hardwood handles and made with sturdy stainless steel and leather loops for hanging, tools can be purchased in sets for $44 or purchased individually. As a bonus, the tools are tucked in an attractive burlap bag ready to gift to a gardener and for storage.
Cutco (www.cutco.com) has built a reputation on its American-made kitchen cutlery, and it also carries a line of garden tools. Though the tools are imported, they are covered by Cutco’s “Forever Guarantee,” including free sharpening (customer pays shipping). Tools are made with heat-treated carbon and stainless steel with handles that are glass-reinforced polypropylene and covered with thermoplastic elastomer. Trowels ($33 and $35) have semi-sharp pointed tips and engraved measurements to plant at the right depth. A 3-piece set ($95) includes a trowel, weeder, and cultivator.
